  • Carey Price collects first shutout vs. Boston
    Carey Price shutout the Boston Bruins for the first time (regular season) in his career.

    Advice: Price has also won five consecutive starts against the Bruins dating back to last year's playoffs. The 27-year-old has 13-4-1 record with a 2.35 goals-against-average and a .922 save percentage. Some would argue that he is the best goalie in the NHL right now.

  • Tyson Strachan plays team-high 23:07
    Tyson Strachan played a team-high 23:07 against the Washington Capitals on Saturday night.

    Advice: Strachan and Tyler Myers were paired against Alex Ovechkin's line for most of the night and the Sabres managed to pull out a win. The 30-year-old is more of a depth defenseman, but he's been forced to play heavy minutes for an inexperienced Buffalo team because of an injury to Josh Gorges. "We want to be playing and we want to play a lot," Strachan said. "We want to be called on in those situations. It’s a great feeling. It’s a tough business and you feel bad for Gorges right now because the team can really use him. ... But while I’m called upon, I’m going to relish playing the minutes and try to battle it out."

  • Ryan Miller to get the start Sunday
    Ryan Miller will be in goal for Vancouver on Sunday when they host Chicago.

    Advice: Miller has not beaten the Blackhawks in his last four games so there is a lot to prove for the veteran netminder. He is 12-3-0 this season with a 2.74 GAA and a .900 save percentage. His peripherals need work but you cannot complain about his win total.
    Today, 8:22 am
  • Henrik Lundqvist to get the start on Sunday
    Henrik Lundqvist will get the start in goal Sunday when the Rangers host the Montreal Canadiens.

    Advice: Lundqvist has not played since Monday as Friday's match against the Sabres was postponed due to the snow in Buffalo. Lundqvist should be well rested Sunday and heads into the game with a 7-5-3 record, a 2.68 GAA and a .910 save percentage. Put him in your lineup if he is not in at this time.
    Today, 8:20 am
  • Daniel Sedin to play in 1,000th game Sunday
    Daniel Sedin will play in his 1,000th NHL game on Sunday when the Canucks host the Chicago Blackhawks.

    Advice: Daniel has 311 goals and 825 career points with the Canucks in 999 games and one interesting stat is that he was a minus-player only once in his career when he was minus-three as a rookie. Even under John Tortorella last season, he was still even in the plus/minus category. Congratulations to Daniel Sedin on the accomplishment tonight.
    Today, 8:16 am
  • Brenden Dillon makes Sharks debut Saturday
    Brenden Dillon made his San Jose debut on Saturday, alongside Brent Burns.

    Advice: Dillon was dealt to the Sharks on Friday and had trouble with the airlines as his equipment was misplaced on a direct flight to San Jose. Nevertheless, he managed to get it and played 21:20 and had four hits with a blocked shot. Look for his hits to improve as he had only 27 in 20 games with Dallas.
    Today, 7:48 am
  • Bryan Rust leads AHL rookies in goals
    Bryan Rust leads all AHL rookies in goals in the early going.

    Advice: The third round pick in 2010, Rust left the University of Notre Dame at the end of his senior season in 2014, after scoring 17 and adding 16 helpers in 40 games. He has seven goals for the Baby Pens this season but likely needs a year or two in the AHL, with an occasional audition in Pittsburgh, to learn the pro game.

  • Derrick Pouliot excelling in the AHL
    Derrick Pouliot is excelling offensively in the AHL.

    Advice: The eighth overall pick in the 2012 draft needs to work on his play in the defensive zone before he is recalled by the Penguins but offensively, his game is at an NHL level. He has two goals and 12 points in just 14 games as he missed the first couple of weeks recovering from off-season shoulder surgery. He has the potential to be a great offensive defenseman in the NHL in seasons to come.
    Today, 7:33 am

  • Nick Bjugstad stays hot in SO loss
    Nick Bjugstad scored another goal in Florida's shootout lost to Nashville.

    Advice: Bjugstad has five goals and eight points in his last four games. The 22-year-old started the season with only one assist in his first 10 games, but has really caught fire since. The Panthers don't really have a go-to offensive star, so Bjugstad should continue to get opportunities to put the puck in the net.
    Today, 6:28 am
  • Michael Cammalleri gets booed in return
    Michael Cammalleri was booed in his return to Calgary.

    Advice: Well, that's not entirely true as he was cheered when he took a pair of minor penalties. He managed to score his eighth of the season and that brought down the boos from the Calgary faithful. Cammalleri had two stints in Calgary with the last one ending over the summer as he inked a five-year deal with New Jersey after becoming a free agent. "A lot of fun," Cammalleri said. "I thought it was an entertaining game for everybody. A couple of times I let emotions get the better of me out there. I probably should’ve been a little more disciplined. There was definitely no shortage of chirps from the other team. I was getting it left, right and center."
    Today, 5:41 am
  • Brandon Bollig a healthy scratch Saturday
    Brandon Bollig was a healthy scratch on Saturday for the second time this season.

    Advice: The Flames gave the Blackhawks a third round pick in 2014 for the rugged Bollig and he has disappointed thus far with only two assists in 20 games, although hits and tough checking is more his game. He has only 34 hits in 20 games after picking up 203 last season in 82 games. He does have 27 penalty minutes, so he has a bit of fantasy value.
    Today, 4:28 am
  • David Schlemko scores first of the season
    David Schlemko scored his first of the season in Arizona's 4-3 shootout win over San Jose Saturday.

    Advice: Just a few days after being recalled, Schlemko gave the Coyotes a 2-0 lead. He now has a goal and an assist in the two games since he was recalled after the Coyotes placed him on waivers, which he passed through, before he was sent to the minors for a couple of days. Schlemko has three points in nine games but should be a depth defenseman, even in deep leagues, at this time.
    Today, 1:22 am
  • Clayton Stoner can't make it through practice
    Clayton Stoner was unable to make it through a full practice on Saturday due to an illness.

    Advice: In 20 games, the former Minnesota Wild blueliner has yet to pick up a point and is a minus-four with 16 penalty minutes. Needless to say, he has no fantasy value at this time and consider him a game-time decision for Sunday's matchup.
    Today, 1:09 am
  • Shane Doan's two points aid Coyotes' win
    Shane Doan scored and assisted in the Coyotes’ 4-3 shootout win against the Sharks on Saturday night.

    Advice: The Coyotes captain also had two shots on goal and four penalty minutes in 20:37. With seven goals and seven assists, he remains an effective player and one capable of scoring 25 and recording around 50 points. That certainly makes him worth rostering in deeper leagues. David Schlemko and Antoine Vermette got the other goals. Mikkel Boedker tallied two helpers.
    Yesterday, 10:44 pm
  • Adam Henrique tallies goal, assist in SO loss
    Adam Henrique recorded two points in the Devils’ 5-4 shootout loss Saturday night to the Flames.

    Advice: Henrique scored the game’s first goal in the first period and he added an assist on Travis Zajac’s second-period power-play tally late in the second. Henrique has six goals and 12 points this season and isn’t a bad source of offense in fantasy leagues. Michael Cammalleri, Travis Zajac and Tuomo Ruutu got the other goals. Marek Zidlicky assisted twice.
    Yesterday, 10:31 pm
  • Carey Price records second shutout in win
    Carey Price was a perfect 30-for-30 in the Candiens’ 2-0 victory Saturday night against the Bruins.

    Advice: Price leads the league with 13 wins, and he has six wins over his last seven starts. The Habs netminder is an excellent top option in fantasy leagues, with a 2.35 goals-against average and .922 save percentage. It’s possible we’re looking at the start of one of his best seasons yet.
    Yesterday, 7:51 pm
  • Sharks intend to play Brenden Dillon Saturday
    The San Jose Sharks will have new defenseman Brenden Dillon in their lineup on Saturday ... at least if his equipment makes it on time.

    Advice: The big 24-year-old has limited fantasy value in "grit stats" areas, as he has 23 PIM and 27 hits in 20 games so far this season. The 2013-14 campaign is more ideal: 86 PIM, 168 hits and 149 blocked shots. Still not a huge factor, but he can help in peripheral categories.
    Yesterday, 11:29 am
  • Price will start Saturday against Bruins
    Carey Price will be in goal Saturday night against the Bruins.

    Advice: He has always played well against Boston and has a 2-0 record against the Bruins this season. We would start Price with confidence Saturday night.
    Yesterday, 7:43 am
  • Michael Cammalleri returns to Calgary
    Michael Cammalleri returns to Calgary for the first time since leaving as a UFA in the off-season.

    Advice: Cammalleri's New Jersey Devils play at the Saddledome on Saturday and Cammalleri is looking forward to his return."It will be a quick turnaround right around the corner," Cammalleri said. "You always talk about the game that’s present and right now for us ... we need some wins here. Having said that, I’m excited to go back to Calgary. It’s a place that was just so good to me and my family. I have so many really, really close friends still there – in hockey, out of hockey, everything." Cammalleri has seven goals and 11 points in 14 games but has not picked up a point in his last three games.
    Yesterday, 5:46 am
  • Sharks pick up Brendan Dillon from Dallas
    The San Jose Sharks have acquired Brendan Dillon from the Dallas Stars in exchange for Jason Demers and a 2016 third-round pick.

    Advice: Dillon has a points and 23 penalty minutes in 20 contests this season. His fantasy value is limited in standard leagues, but he is somewhat noteworthy in leagues that value hits and blocked shots.
    Friday, 12:33 pm
  • Nick Bjugstad has monster game in FLA win
    Nick Bjugstad scored two goals in regulation and added the shootout winner in Florida's 3-2 win over San Jose.

    Advice: Bjugstad had a night to remember against the Sharks. The 22-year-old gave the Panthers a 1-0 and 2-1 lead in the game. With the shootout tied at one, Bjugstad beat Antti Niemi to give Florida the win. After a very slow start to the season, he now has four goals and seven points in his last three games. The Panthers don't score many goals so it will be difficult for Bjugstad to keep putting up points.
    Thursday, 10:34 pm
  • Carey Price stymies Blues with 31 saves
    Carey Price was on the ball on Thursday night, blocking 31 of 32 shots to guide the Habs to a 4-1 victory over St. Louis to avenge Tuesday's loss to Pittsburgh.

    Advice: Price improves to 12-4-1 with a .917 save percentage and 2.41 goals against average. He has won five of six and Montreal will travel to Boston to face their Northeast division rivals on Saturday.
    Thursday, 7:39 pm
  • David Schlemko will be scratched on Thursday
    David Schlemko will be a healthy scratch in Thursday's game against Dallas.

    Advice: The 27-year-old has one assist in seven games for Arizona this season.
    Thursday, 4:54 pm
  • Ryan Miller continues dominance over Oilers
    Canucks goaltender Ryan Miller made 28 saves in the Vancouver Canucks' 5-4 victory over the Oilers in Edmonton Wednesday night.

    Advice: Miller extended his career winning streak against the Oilers to 11 games. He is enjoying a top-notch season, his first with Vancouver, sporting a record of 12-3-0. The veteran's goals-against average is 2.74 and his save percentage is .900. If, by chance, Miller is available in your fantasy league -- and that's doubtful -- you should snap him up immediately. The Canucks are for real this season, and it's largely because of their new goalie.
    Wednesday, 8:13 pm
  • Daniel Sedin gets three assists for Vancouver
    Daniel Sedin assisted on three goals in the Vancouver Canucks' 5-4 victory over the Oilers in Edmonton Wednesday night.

    Advice: Sedin now has 15 assists on the season. His linemate and twin brother, Henrik Sedin, picked up two assists in Edmonton to give him 14 for the season. New Canuck Radim Vrbata continues to benefit from playing on a line with the Sedins, as he scored two goals, bringing his season total to eight. Also scoring goals for the Canucks in this back-and-forth affair were Jannik Hansen, his fourth of the season, Chris Higgins, also his fourth and Yannick Weber, his first. Weber's game winner came at 11:32 of the third period.
    Wednesday, 8:00 pm
  • Vancouver will send out Ryan Miller Wednesday
    Ryan Miller will be in net Wednesday for the Canucks.

    Advice: Miller will be making his 15th start of the year for Vancouver as they travel to Edmonton to take on the Oilers. He was lit up in his last start Friday night giving up five goals on just 22 shots, but Miller will look to bounce back Wednesday versus the Oilers. He will go for his 12th win on the year.
    Wednesday, 4:24 pm
  • Adam Henrique feels alright in his return
    Adam Henrique felt okay in his return from a lower-body injury.

    Advice: "I was just trying to get back into the rhythm of the game play," Henrique said. "I felt like I got to where I was comfortable out there, but I didn't really have an impact on the game like I wish I had." Henrique missed six straight games due to the ailment. He has four goals and nine points in 13 contests this season.
    Wednesday, 6:19 am
  • Adam Henrique (LBI) rejoins the Devils
    Adam Henrique (lower body) was able to play on Tuesday.

    Advice: Henrique was sidelined for six consecutive games due to the ailment. He had a minus-one rating in 17:28 minutes of ice time in his return.
    Tuesday, 11:30 pm
  • Carey Price stumbles in loss to Penguins
    Carey Price suffered through a difficult evening against the Penguins Tuesday, as he allowed four goals on 22 shots in a 4-0 loss.

    Advice: Price entered the game on a roll, having won four straight decisions prior to dropping this one, but he dropped the ball in this one. Despite the loss, his season has to be considered a success to-date since he owns an 11-4-1 record, a 2.58 GAA and a .914 save percentage.
    Tuesday, 9:41 pm
  • Carey Price to start against Pittsburgh
    Carey Price will be in net as Montreal takes on Pittsburgh at home on Tuesday night.

    Advice: Price will test his .919 save percentage and 2.49 GAA against a Penguins club who've won eight of their last nine while compiling 36 goals in that time. For what it's worth, Price has allowed 37 goals in his 15 starts.
    Tuesday, 2:46 pm
  • Adam Henrique (LBI) is a game-time decision
    Adam Henrique (lower body) has declared himself to be a "game-time decision."

    Advice: Henrique will likely end up playing on Tuesday though. If he is in the lineup, he'll probably play alongside Tuomo Ruutu and Damien Brunner.
    Tuesday, 1:44 pm
  • Arizona summons David Schlemko
    David Schlemko has been called up by the Arizona Coyotes.

    Advice: Schlemko has an assist in seven games with Arizona in 2014-15. He's not worth keeping on your radar in standard leagues.
    Tuesday, 9:08 am
  • Rangers lack offense; Henrik Lundqvist loses
    On a night when the New York Rangers could muster up only 16 shots on net, Henrik Lundqvist couldn't do very much to help his team.

    Advice: The Rangers' star goalie stopped 25 shots in a 5-1 loss to the visiting Tampa Bay Lightning. Lundqvist's record fell to 7-5-3. His goals-against average took a hit, as well, and is now at 2.68. His save percentage is .910. He is, nonetheless, still one of the premier goalies in the NHL and, despite the Rangers' troubles so far this season, there is no reason to give up on him if he's your fantasy goalie.
    Monday, 7:18 pm
  • Adam Henrique (LBI) is probable Tuesday night
    Adam Henrique (lower body) will probably make his return on Tuesday.

    Advice: Henrique has missed six straight contests due to the injury. He was off to a good start prior to that with four goals and nine points in 12 contests.
    Monday, 2:40 pm
  • Carey Price named the 2nd star of the week
    Carey Price has received the NHL's second star of the week.

    Advice: Price had a 1.33 GAA and .950 save percentage in three straight victories. The Canadiens have been fantastic this season and while he isn't the primary reason for their early success, Price has been good so far and he'll likely get better as the 2014-15 campaign progresses.
    Nov 17, 9:33 am
  • Nick Bjugstad scores four points in win
    Nick Bjugstad scored two goals and added two assists in Florida’s 6-2 win over Anaheim on Sunday.

    Advice: Bjugstad collected three of his four points in the second period. The 22-year-old accumulated more points tonight than he had all season (3). Vincent Trocheck, Brad Boyes (twice), and Jonathan Huberdeau also scored for the Panthers. Bjugstad has good upside but he’s unlikely to produce much offense this season. Florida is 2-0-1 in their last three games.
    Nov 16, 8:01 pm
  • Henrik Lundqvist not happy with shootout play
    Henrik Lundqvist is not happy with his play in the shootout.

    Advice: Lundqvist is 1-3 in shootouts this season after losing last night to Pittsburgh. "I have to step it up," Lundqvist said. "I feel like I played a really solid game, did a lot of good things but, in the end, we came up a little short in the shootout. It’s something I have to work on."
    Nov 16, 3:49 am
  • Adam Henrique to go with team on road trip
    Adam Henrique (lower body) will go with the Devils on their upcoming four game road trip to Western Canada.

    Advice: The Devils will return home and play after Thanksgiving but they are expecting Henrique, who has missed the last six games to play on the road trip. Henrique has four goals and nine points in 12 games and should be back in your fantasy lineup this week.
    Nov 16, 3:08 am
  • Lundqvist makes 36 saves in shootout loss
    Henrik Lundqvist made 36 saves in the Rangers’ 3-2 shootout loss to the Penguins on Saturday night.

    Advice: What a way to lose. The Rangers thought they had won the game when Dan Boyle scored in the shootout, leaving the ice and some packing their sticks away. However, it was ruled Boyle double-hit the puck and scored off the rebound, so the teams had to come out and each play another shooter. It’s a tough loss for Lundqvist, who was simply sensational, stopping several point-blank chances, one late on a breakaway from Sidney Crosby. He has a 2.51 goals-against average and .916 save percentage this season.
    Nov 15, 7:59 pm
  • Carey Price makes 26 saves, wins 4th in row
    Carey Price gave up three goals, but still ended up with the win in the Candiens’ 6-3 victory over the Flyers on Saturday night.

    Advice: Price made 26 saves, with one goal coming against him on the power play. He had given up two goals over his past three games, all of which were wins. The 27-year-old has the talent to win the Vezina, but he’ll need to stay consistent in his game. He has a 2.49 goals-against average and .919 save percentage in 15 games this season.
    Nov 15, 7:34 pm
  • David Schlemko sent to minors
    The Arizona Coyotes have assigned David Schlemko to the minors.

    Advice: Schlemko cleared waivers earlier today and the Coyotes have decided to send him to their AHL affiliate in Portland. The 27-year-old has one assist in seven games this season.
    Nov 15, 12:29 pm
  • Brandon Bollig back in Flames' lineup
    Brandon Bollig will be reinserted into the Flames' lineup for their game against Ottawa on Saturday night.

    Advice: Bollig was a healthy scratch in Calgary's game against Arizona on Thursday. He is expected to skate on a line with Max Reinhart and Lance Bouma.
    Nov 15, 11:42 am
  • David Schlemko clears waivers
    David Schlemko has cleared waivers.

    Advice: The Coyotes haven't announced what their plans are for Schlemko just yet, but he will probably be assigned to the Portland Pirates of the AHL.
    Nov 15, 9:26 am
  • Price to start against Flyers Saturday night
    Carey Price will be in goal Saturday night against the Flyers.

    Advice: No big surprise here. Price is coming off a nice 22-save, 5-1 win over Boston Thursday night and has won three games in a row. Make sure he is active against Philly Saturday evening.
    Nov 15, 7:25 am
  • Adam Henrique unlikely to play Saturday
    Adam Henrique (lower body) is unlikely to play on Saturday.

    Advice: The forward has sat out the last five games with the injury.He has four goals and nine points in 12 games. It is also unlikely that Jon Merrill (sore hand/arm), Bryce Salvador (lower-body injury) and Ryane Clowe (suspected concussion) will be able to go.
    Nov 15, 4:42 am
  • Ryan Miller gives up five goals to Arizona
    Ryan Miller was beaten five times and made just 17 saves Friday night's 5-0 loss to Arizona.

    Advice: It was an off-night for the Canucks as a team, but Miller especially wasn't sharp as at least three of the Coyotes' goals could have been stopped. Fortunately for the Canucks they have five days to rest and regain their focus before taking on Edmonton on the 19th.
    Nov 14, 9:53 pm
  • Mike Cammalleri scores only goal in win
    Michael Cammalleri scored the only goal of the game in New Jersey's 1-0 win over Washington.

    Advice: Cammalleri has collected four points in his last three games since returning from a jaw injury. The 32-year-old has been very productive this season. Cammalleri now has seven goals and 11 points in 11 games this season. He won't be able to keep producing at a point-per-game pace, but he should continue to see plenty of time on the power play. A 55 to 60 point season is not out of the question for Cammalleri.
    Nov 14, 7:30 pm
  • Coyotes put David Schlemko on waivers
    David Schlemko has been waived by the Arizona Coyotes.

    Advice: Schlemko has an assist in seven games in 2014-15. In his career, the 27-year-old has 47 points and 72 penalty minutes in 194 contests.
    Nov 14, 10:07 am
  • Shane Doan scores two points in loss
    Shane Doan scored a goal and an assist in Arizona’s 5-3 loss to Calgary on Thursday.

    Advice: Doan scored a late goal in the first period to tie the game at one. Unfortunately for the Coyotes, they gave up three goals in the second period. Doan has still been a productive player, even in the late stages of his career. The 38-year-old now has five goals and 11 points in 16 games this season. He should flirt with the 20-goal and 50-point marks this year. Antoine Vermette and Joe Vitale also scored for Arizona.
    Nov 13, 8:46 pm
  • Carey Price stymies Bruins with 21 saves
    Carey Price allowed just one goal on 22 shots in winning his third straight game on Thursday night, a 5-1 victory over the hated Boston Bruins.

    Advice: Price has allowed just two goals in his previous three games, a solid follow-up to a brief slump where he allowed 13 goals in three losses between Oct. 30 and Nov. 4. Price appears back on track with a 10-3-1 record this season to go along with a .920 save percentage and 2.45 goals against average.
    Nov 13, 8:02 pm
  • Henrik Lundqvist and Rangers beaten in SO
    Henrik Lundqvist stopped 26 of 29 shots through 65 minutes on Thursday night, but allowed two goals on three shots in the shootout in a 4-3 loss to Colorado.

    Advice: Nathan MacKinnon scored a beautiful goal in the shootout and Alex Tanguay sealed the Rangers' fate with another goal. Lundqvist will look for redemption on Saturday night in Pittsburgh, as the star goaltender has not lost consecutive games since Oct. 12 and 14th, the second and third games of the season.
    Nov 13, 7:47 pm
  • Bollig will be a healthy scratch Thursday
    Brandon Bollig is projected to be a healthy scratch against the Arizona Coyotes on Thursday.

    Advice: Bollig has just two assists in 17 games this season. "We've had conversations over the season and in the past couple of weeks," Bollig said. "I think I know what needs to be done, and we'll kind of take it from there." Bollig thinks the adjustments he needs to make are relatively minor and related to his defensive play.
